A Bright Moon for Fools: A Novel

'"Few first novels are as bold or as haunting as this." —The Spectator"This book is part thriller, part farce, part Don Quixote, and has plenty of excellent writing...Gibson has created a larger-than-life character in Harry Christmas." —Kirkus Reviews"A Bright Moon for Fools is often very funny indeed...the vigour of its central character propelling it constantly forward, its jokes and riffs crackling and sparking. A Christmas to remember." —The Guardian“A terrific first novel starring a magnificently disastrous Christmas.” —Daily Mail"Pulses with vivid prose and plenty of local color." —Booklist“Very funny, very moving and very unpleasant.” —Michael Palin“Wonderfully poetic, absorbing and so funny I snorted tea through my nose. And I wasn’t even drinking any.” —Danny Wallace"Harry Christmas is amongst the greatest characters of modern fiction; your right hand wants to protect him, and your left hand wants to punch him. Reading this novel is an exhilarating adventure." —Niall Griffiths"Relentlessly funny, blazingly paced, a pinball ride of a novel propelled by the dreams and schemes of one of the most memorable anti-heroes in contemporary fiction." —Chloe Aridjis"In Harry Christmas we have a hero who belongs to that glorious strain of Englishness that encompasses Keith Floyd and John McCririck an unrelenting force of dog and duck feverishness and confused chutzpah, a sweaty man child, but a king none the less." —Simon Day"An incredibly entertaining read that grabs you first with great humour and doesn’t let go as you become involved in a much deeper story... Harry Christmas is a character I won’t ever forget." —The Bookbag"Up there with the best debut novels of the last decade." —Bookmunch'
